The asian food scene in the US has been steadily expanding as more and more asian immigrants have come to America. In particular, asian fusion foods have taken off as a new form of asian cuisine that is now popular with diners across the country.
In this article, we will explore four different examples of asian fusion dishes from around the world that you should know about if you enjoy asian food.
Pho is a Vietnamese soup that’s as healthy as it is delicious. It’s also easy to make, as you’ll see in the recipe below. The great thing about pho? There are as many variations as there are cooks! Pho can be made with different noodles – white rice noodles, wheat noodles or even glass noodles. You can use beef or chicken broth instead of water for the liquid base and add any number of vegetables to your dish – bean sprouts, scallions, bok choy…the sky’s the limit! If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some star anise, cinnamon sticks or cloves for extra flavor. What’s more: if you want to turn this into a vegetarian dish, simply omit the meat and add as many as you need of asparagus, bok choy or sugar snap peas.
Hawaiian Poke Bowl
The Hawaiian Poke Bowl is a dish that has been around for as long as people have been eating fish. It was traditionally eaten as an appetizer, but recently it’s become a dish all on its own due to the rise in popularity of raw fish dishes.
The traditional way to eat the poke bowl involved placing sushi rice in a small bowl and topping it with pieces of sashimi or other types of seafood from your favorite market. Today, however, there are many variations on this original recipe including adding vegetables like cucumbers and bell peppers as well as different sauces such as soy sauce or wasabi mayo. The “poke” refers to chunks of fresh tuna marinated with soy sauce and sesame oil which are served as the main dish with sushi rice.
Malaysian Roti Canai
Malaysian Roti Canai is a staple in Malaysian cuisine. It’s served as an accompaniment to most dishes, as it’s often hard for people with Western tastes to stomach the spiciness of authentic Southeast Asian food. The dough itself is made from flour and water that are mixed together then kneaded into a ball before being flattened out into rounds with a rolling pin. After frying them in oil, they’re typically sprinkled with sugar or honey as well as ground cardamom seeds. They’re also sold at most Malaysian restaurants for take-out purposes if you want to enjoy them at home!
The dish of Singaporean Laksa is a type of asian fusion food. It’s made with the following ingredients: rice noodles, shrimp, fish cake, bean sprouts, and curry powder. The words “laksa” means ‘sour soup’. So as you might imagine from the name alone it has an asian flavor to it. One thing that makes this dish different than most asian dishes is that some people like to add coconut milk which gives it a more creamier feeling on your palate when eating it or drinking it (most asians don’t drink their soups). The noodles in this dish are served either al dente or soft and can be found at any asian grocery store if you do not have asian food in your area.
